That's not really an Android question, but assuming you were asking "how can I import this VCard file correctly into my Android address book": Some adjustments might be required to the VCard file. I found a specification summary in this Github issue comment: vCard 2.1 is US-ASCII by default. Individual properties can be overridden with the CHARSET=...

I've found NFC Tools to be a good app for this. You can write several default tag types, but they also offer a "raw" format, where you specify the mime type/header and content directly. I was able to make a Version 3 vcard with a small PNG image included which worked well on several android devices. Just be sure your vcard format is in spec when you do ...

Android doesn't have native support for vCards and it's annoying. Fortunately, since they come through as SMS/MMS messages they aren't only in Hangouts, any SMS/MMS-handling app you install can read the messages so long as you haven't deleted them. You can install bizcardmanager (it's $1.50 but there's a free version too) and it will show a list of vCards ...

if you have an app like NFC Tools or a manual reader/writer, you can add a custom/manual data record and use text/vcard as the content type. For the data field, just paste your vcard data like: BEGIN:VCARD VERSION:2.1 FN:Your Name TEL;CELL:(123) 555-1212 EMAIL;WORK:123@yahoo.com ORG:Company Name TITLE:Your Title URL:google.com URL:fb.com/username URL:...

Check if you're contacts are duplicated by logging on to google on a browser... If they are duplicated there then that means the back up screwed up... If they are not duplicated there, then, delete all your contacts on your phone then back up from google again. Hope I helped, Sid

This finally worked for me: I was texted a vcf card from an Iphone to my Galaxy S4. Downloaded it, went to device storage. Where is that? Open apps, click on MY Files, Downloads. Voila! Check which file you want, or just tap it. Opens a screen cancel or save. Save to device. Search contacts for name, there it is in contacts!

I think this app, Contacts VCF should do what you want. Shows the list of contacts inside a .vcf file. The application allows you to open files with the extension of import contacts .vcf (vCard) as a phone book to add and edit the contacts, make calls. It can be used as an alternative to contacts Android. Get a copy of all the contacts from the ...

Use a text editor to open the VCF file. It should look like this: BEGIN:VCARD VERSION:2.1 FN:****FIRST NAME****** N:******NAME*******;;;; TEL;VOICE;PREF:********NUMBER******** END:VCARD Replace all stars with the data's name that I provided between them. You may use ES File Explorer to open VCF file as text.

You should be able to open a vCard file in any basic editor. Navigate using a file manager to open up the vcard in a text editor. It should display the contents.

In this case an OS upgrade solved the issue. For someone in a similar situation without an OS upgrade (or other fix) in sight, it might be worth taking a look at VCard Manager (which claims to be able to open all types of VCards) or Contacts VCF, which says to open any .vcf file: VCard Manager and Contacts VCF (source: Google Play; click images for ...
